familier frontiers

I suppose frontiers should generally be new ones!
But not these, familiar ones instead.

We have been away in Cornwall dear Blogging friends, spending time with our Aunt in her lovely rural home.

When we returned home we observed that Mrs H's world was consumed by W O R K.
So glad to be visiting you all again now, at last!

Mr Bingley walking the boundaries

Nature doesn't acknowledge frontiers... you know ...

I wish to go forth (but Mum would miss me)

Bingley checking out Crows

Sitting with Aunt

We can see where she is struggling with knowledge. We can see what she forgets completely but also what she knows she once knew. We can tell how she is trying to remember. It is possible to alleviate her physical pain, but mental pain - her dementia – no we don’t know how. If only we did. Love you Auntie.

 ... and then we go out again, rest up a bit, ponder life.

 ... the next day the sun comes out and we get up early, drive to Newquay and walk the cliff and beach.
Finishing off with a veggie breakfast.

Mr Bingley supervised the tree surgeons taking down some wayward trees on our boundary.
Plenty of logs for the stove.

 ... also he supervised the flies and a number of ants ...
(some cat must)

A day trip to Glendurgan Gardens a stunning spot (felines kept the bed warm at home).

When we came home Mr Bingley checking nosed BIG TIME in the shed.

Darcy and Bingley

We have had a holiday, and we'd like to take it up professionally.


  1. It is lovely to hear from you again, and what a lovely post. Full of beauty and love!

    The Chans

  2. It is sure nice to see you, we've been missing you! I enjoyed the photos of your adventure.

  3. Awww such a beautiful post! We send mum's aunt all the love in the world. We are so happy she has family with her and that she is surrounded by gentleness and care.

    Beautiful Mr Bingley! You are such an adventurer! You do not see boundaries but all possibilities instead! And adorable Mr Darcy! You are a sleeping beauty!

    The Gardens are lovely too! take care

  4. Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy
    We have surely missed you but glad to hear you had a good visit with your Auntie and enjoyed the sun shine. Lots of hugs from
    your BFFF

  5. Welcome back, it's lovely to see you both again. We suspect, though, that you might need a holiday from the holiday! :-)

    Regarding the issue of dementia--we've come so far in a short span of time, in terms of understanding how the brain functions, but really, I think we've merely scratched the surface. Sending her universal Light, for her Highest Good.

  6. Wow .. what a time you had. So glad you got to go with. By the way, I enjoy your blogs so so much.

  7. So sorry to hear about your aunt with dementai - it must be so sad to see. The OH's Grandad had Alzheimers and he had to be watched all the time - he would drink anything that was liquid so had to be watched constantly. Love the catty photos, as usual.

  8. My darling beautiful boys, I have missed you so. xoxoxox

  9. It's so good to hear from you! Holidays are nice, but it's good to be home again.

  10. You have kept yourself busy Mr Bingley, and interesting too. Purrs from all of us.

  11. Familiar frontiers are good because no doubt there is always something new to find for you two intrepid explorers, even in the areas you know well:)

  12. We have missed you! Those are wonderful pictures!

  13. Welcome back! We've missed you!

  14. Lovely to see Darcy and Bingley back from their hols! It looks so lovely I could have holidayed there myself.
    Just watched the videos by the way, I love the one with the watering can! Funnily enough Marmalade prefers to drink from the jug I fill our steam iron with water. It obviously tastes nicer!!

  15. Mr. Bingley, Mr. Darcy - nice to find you on cyberspace again. We used to visit you guys. How have you been?

    Emma and Buster

  16. It's so nice to see you again, dear friends. WE are glad you had a nice trip, though we are sad about your Aunt's dementia. We've had some family members suffer from it, and it is so difficult.

    Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments when it was time for our Sammy to leave for the Bridge. We are so grateful.


    Kevin, Tracey and Moosey

  17. And here I thought it was the dog's job to secure the perimeters... But if you don't have a dog, then a cat will do!! So glad your Aunt had a couple of cats to pet for a few days!!! That must help her!!! (It sure helps me, until the cathair goes up my nose...)

  18. But it's good to see you back! And no snow, either.

    Excuse the drool. This is what happens when you show us BACON.

  19. You boys are lovely.
    Heart Healers.
    I've missed seeing you around!

  20. Looks like you had a great holiday.
